Ecstasy, as a mild hallucigen, causes many driving accidents -- but in this case, it created paranoia in the driver, which led to the tragic crash.

A DRUNK-driver took cocktail of drugs and alcohol before crashing into a lamp post and killing his teenage passenger. Adam Hughes, 17, died when the Rover 420 GSI driven by Paul Foreman in Edge Lane, Liverpool, crashed at high speed , Liverpool Crown Court heard yesterday.

Foreman was locked up for seven years after he pleaded guilty to causing death by dangerous driving and driving while disqualified. The court heard Adam was trapped in the wreckage after the smash on October 17. Eric Lamb, prosecuting, said 19-year-old Foreman, who had taken Ecstasy and had become paranoid that police were following him, had ignored another passenger's request to slow down as he drove the unroad worthy vehicle at up to 90 mph.
